The Coroners' Courts Support Service aims are:

  • To support both practically and emotionally the family, and other witnesses attending the Coroner’s Courts.
  • To liaise with other parties appearing before the court, to ensure their understanding of its role and the procedures, in order to facilitate its smooth and effective administration.
  • To refer families and witnesses to other agencies if so requested, for ongoing help with coming to terms with their bereavement.


CCSS Volunteers will be there on the day of an inquest, to give practical help, explain the legal and court processes and offer emotional support whilst family members, witnesses and others are at court.
